This is truly the world we live in. People don't care for one another anymore. Social media and MSM have changed the way people behave and it is very disturbing.

@LEO0301
For once i agree with you. I do wonder how long it took someone to call 911.

On another note, why is this website willing to put all kinds of other violent videos of people getting shot and crushed by cars and dying on camera, but won't post one about this situation?

@Hi_estComnDenomn If you have to ask why, you have no respect. But most of us already knew where your "respect" lies anyway. Scumbags that brak the law deserve no respect. The men and women we call when we need help deserve, and have earned that respect.

For that matter @Hi_estComnDenomn why no mention on this site of the 42 years free GOLDEN STATE SERIAL KILLER? I'll tell you why, coz they found the killer from DNA sample submitted to a geanoalogy site, not of the killer but a distant relative, & now Many in Law enforcement(retd) are pissing their pants, as many more skeletons are about to come out.
